“Hired Matt Hirsch at a distance to take on a traffic case with a missed mandatory court appearance (or two). Even as the case dragged on longer than anticipated (not the fault in any way of the lawyer), and indeed went a couple rounds, Mr. Hirsch remained engaged, positive, and proactive. I firmly believe he and his firm resolved my case with the best outcome for me. Would recommend Cohen & Hirsch for cases of my type without reservation, and his working for me at a fairly great distance, without my ever appearing back in state, deserves particular note”

“Matt was a great treasure! Always kept calm and let me be the same. Looking at his fb feed, I was convinced he’s the right person for me. Helped get through a difficult situation. His fees were also comparable to the others given the amount of personal attention he paid to the case. Never had the trouble of dealing with the paralegals(as we all know what happens). He was always available on text. Great experience!!”

Dentist arrested for alleged drug-related charges

On Behalf of | Oct 16, 2012 | Drug Charges |

In Atlanta, Georgia, like anywhere else in the country, anyone who is charged with a crime is entitled the best defense possible, no matter what the crime. Even those charged with felony drug charges are entitled to clear their names however possible.

Recently, a Georgian dentist who serves on a state board and is politically connected was charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor charge for allegedly writing illegal prescriptions for Valium and other strong painkillers for profit. If he is convicted on either of the felonies, he would lose his license. All of the hard work he had done to help people over the years would be nullified. He faces penalties of up to 13 years in prison and being fined up to $75,000.

However, there are many defenses that can be brought against these crimes. Some of the ones that could apply to this man’s case are that there was an unlawful search and seizure, or entrapment. Some other defenses that could used are that the drugs were planted on the defendant, they belonged to someone else or that the crime lab analysis was incorrect or inconclusive. Any of these defenses, if successful, would be enough to overcome even the most drastic drug charges.

In this country, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. If a man is wrongfully accused or the evidence is insufficient to prove the man’s guilt, then that man will not face the penalties he is accused of. Everyone deserves the best defense that can be mustered for them.
